[Get involved in Open source projects]

[Restful HOL -Hands On Lab-]
- Glassfish (application server basically but can do more than that)
- Webservice

[Java Mobile]
- JavaFX :with his magick bind method. The bind method basically allows you to change the value of one variable dynamically. Ex: if i bind x to y and if y is changing (on drag of an image for example) i don't need to worry about coding to update x.
- More classes to make the programming easier

[Mobile and Embedded Java Update]

[Personnal impression]

{Pros - things to remember}
- demo must show new interresting things
- the way people were presenting
- HOL are available for people after the event (because it is quite impossible to finish them and ask questions if you are new to the technology)
- You can ask questions on the author blog
- Importance of local teams in open source project (the maintain the group when you are gone :-))
- The place and decoration is better than the website of the event :-)

- Marketing of "NetBeans"
- JavaFX is for animation but the environment is not yet as easy for designers (compare to Flash); its more for java developpers who want to do animation.
- Eclipse has already many of the "new features" (many plugins) . So you can choose Net Beans or whatever tool you want but don't become slave of the tool or ... ;-D
- You can't ask questions in the room (i guess because of the busy schedule and so many people willing to ask more and more questions ...).

I was a cool event anyway, new environnement, new people especially for a guy like me who is not java java :-D.
